For their Quickfire Challenge, the Cheftestants visit the bar where everybody knows your name, Cheers, where they must create a tasty bar snack for special guest judge George Wendt, the actor who played Norm on the hit TV show. Then, Top Chef Masters alum Michael Schlow welcomes the chefs to his Italian restaurant, Via Matta, for the Elimination Challenge where the chefs must work in teams to write and create a three-course Italian menu. The team whose menu is ordered the most wins while everyone else is up for a double elimination! Joining the judges is actress Emmy Rossum, star of Shameless, who throws the chefs for a loop when they must make last minute adjustments to accommodate Emmy's gluten-free diet.
